Only Olivier Giroud and Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa Could Leave Confirms Montpellier President

Monday, 28th May, 2012

Montpellier president Louis Nicollin has explained that only two players could leave the newly crowned French champions this summer – Olivier Giroud and Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa.

The south coast club, who scored a stunning Ligue 1 title success earlier this month, are hoping to keep hold of their star performers to aid in the upcoming Champions League campaign, but do appreciate that they have a number of players who are wanted elsewhere.

Nicollin though has put the breaks on any departures apart from those he accepts may happen for the right price.

"The only one who can leave, it’s Olivier Giroud, because he has a clause", Nicollin told TV show Stade 2.

"Then there is Mapou too, because we promised we would let him go if there was a good offer.

"But these are the only two who could leave and it is not yet certain that they are going."

Giroud has attracted interest from clubs in Spain and England, while Turkish giants Fenerbahce are the latest to be linked with a big money bid for the striker.

Yanga-Mbiwa meanwhile is wanted in England, with Arsenal, Newcastle United and Tottenham Hotspur all having kept tabs on the 23-year-old.
